This is Bob. #BobTheDog. He is almost 8 and lives in Dubai with his two humans Suzanne and Peter and his not so friendly cat, Pushkins.
Both Bob and Pushkins are from South Africa and travelled to Dubai with us when we made the move here in December 2014.
Bob was rescued from the SPCA and has lived with us since May 2012.
Bob has adapted well to life in Dubai, sadly there is no where for him to run free other than in doggy day care, which we visit at least once a week. There are many indoor facilities in Dubai and a couple with outdoor space and swimming pools. Bob does however enjoy his twice daily walks as it's winter here, but when it gets too hot, we'll be spending more time in doggy day care.
When Peter and I travel aboard Bob doesn't mind his time away from us, however when I'm at home he follows me from room to room.
We moved house in December and until last month our garden was just a sand pit, making it difficult to bath Bob and he was getting rather smelly, so I've been taking him along to Paw Parking, where he can play with other dogs and have his much needed bath and get his nails clipped.
Here's Bob enjoying one of his baths, a rub down and a pedicure.
I'm not affiliated in anyway with Paw Parking, I'm just impressed with their facilities, staff, friendliness, prices, range of events and interaction on social media. I'm also very pleased that they are opening boarding facilities for cats from the beginning of March.
awww Bob is such a cutie - that photo of him in the towel is just adorable!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for sharing this with us at #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you back next week!
Bob does love his baths and the cameraDelete
Bob is adorable! What a fun way to pamper your pooch :) #TriumphantTalesReplyDelete
thank you, we do have some fun togetherDelete
very cute, though I will admit that my first thought was that I hope my wife never hears about anything like thins around us. Our dog is spoiled enough! #triumphanttalesReplyDelete
it's more a case of making my life easier than it is about spoiling BobDelete
Paw Parking and the indoor facilities and pool sound like great places for Bob. The picture of him with the towel is adorable.ReplyDelete
they are all amazing in Dubai, nothing is unachievableDelete
Awwww bless him, he is so cute and what a fantastic doggie spa! Bob is a fantastic name for a dog! :) Sim xx #PoCoLoReplyDelete
I've called everything Bob my entire life, so it seemed fitting to name my dog thatDelete
Hi Suzanne, places like this must be a blessing when you haven't the ideal space to wash your dog. I'm not sure Bob would say he's loving it though, he looks quite comical. Our dogs always get that 'sad' look when they're all wet too, but feel great afterwards.ReplyDelete
Bob just looks sad/fed up all the time, it's his resting dog faceDelete
I love the photos of Bob; his expesssions! #AnimalTalesReplyDelete
it's great that he can go and have some TLC and a clean up, I imagine it must be hard to live in the heat as a dog and having a space where he can have a good bath and scrub up is handy! #animaltalesReplyDelete
when I bathe him at home he goes straight into the sand to dry himself grrrrrrDelete
Not being a dog owner I've never used one of these places. I guess everyone needs a pamper huh?ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking to #pocolo
I guess Bob probably doesn't need one of these places, but my mind set is 'why not?'Delete
Saari would run a mile if I suggested a spa day to her, lol. She HATES being washed and isn't good with strangers ... so I'd end up with a smelly dog if I lived in Dubai! And I do love the picture of Bob in his spa towel :) Lovely post to add to #AnimalTales - thank you.ReplyDelete
Bob and Pushkins have been in kennels for over a week, off to collect them soon, hoping they come back smelling of roses lolDelete
